Armani's Ratings and Reviews
The food was not as I remembered. Although it was good it was not great as I would have expected for a dining experience in this price range. For the money I was disappointed with the anti pasta bar as well. Of course the view and the service were unbeatable.
This is our second visit to Armanie's. I find the menu a little restrictive but, my wife and I have found our favorites. The atmosphere is to die for. The service is excellent, thank you Maria and Laurie. A wonderful piano player with fantastic tunes for a cozy and romantic dinner. We'll be back.
This was a fantastic dining adventure. The cocktails before the meal were well made and the pianist was a nice addition to the mood. The dining experience was wonderful from making our own antipasto plate to the meals we got. The staff was amazingly kind, courteous, and informative on each course. We would recommend this experience to everyone!!
As is consistent with what I've heard the food was good, not great. The view and setting is phenomenal and the piano in the background is a nice touch. You feel that you are at a nice place but the value just wasn't there. Thankfully we brought our own wine because what I brought on their menu was nearly $200! That said, we had a sunset reservation and it was really special and unique, I just wish the food had lived up to it as well. Veal Milanese was rich and delicate, albeit predictable but tast nonetheless. The carbonara was good, just missing something. The anitpasata was fun and actually a pretty good value, thought nothing was overly interesting. Anyways, good for a nice date. Would definitely return for drinks and to sit out on the large patio overlooking Tampa and beyond!
We have been there several times. The service was great, the food horrible. The menu is very limited ex. no steaks of any kind, few fish or fowl. The fish dish I had was "soggy" tasted like it was cooked frozen. My wife's Prime was full of gristle served on top of one tiny potato. The manager should have picked up on the issue as he was the one who cleared our uneaten meals but he did not. Our waiter spoke with manager and although we chose not complain he persisted and asked why we left most on the plates he came back with no charge. We left him a substantial tip for his service. Our anniversary was not as expected. Anyway that is the story of our special dinner reserved weeks in advance and traveled 700 miles to get there.
We have been to Armani's many times and it has never disappointed us. It is high quality fine dining in a comfortable setting with highly professional and attentive wait staff and a fabulous view overlooking the bay.
We especially like to start with the antipasto bar where you put together a plate selecting from 50 choices of delectable items.
Armani's is first class all the way.
Wedding Anniversary... my husband had never been, & I warned him that I wasn't sure how the food was going to be, but told him the ambience would be wonderful. I am so glad I warned him of what I was hoping would not happen because the food was a complete disappointment! The Cauliflower Risotto was delicious, but the Antipasta appetizer was a complete disappointment, while the entrees were pretty sub-par as well. The Veal Milanese had NO flavor... how do you mess up a piece of breaded veal?? And the Swordfish was lacking in flavor as well. Would definitely go back for drinks, but probably never again for dinner, which makes me sad since Armani's has been a favorite of mine since high school (circa 1994)
For the 6th year now, my wife and I dined at Armani's for our anniversary. We always have a great time for all the reasons noted above. (We also come for other reasons, but our Anniversary is the best!)
Our thanks for the staff and chefs for a consistently wonderful experience!
Great view, service wasn't as good as I'd expect for the setting and price, but was average. Food was prepared beautifully and presentation was great. Had an old fashioned cocktail before dinner and it had a huge orange slice and a bright red/dive bar maraschino cherry on a sword, with no muddling involved. I'd expect more a craft cocktail with an authentic/dark maraschino cherry and some lightly muddled orange peel.
The food is incredible. I had the buffalo ribeye. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and melted in my mouth. My wife had a strip steak that was equally amazing
One member of our party is vegan.the waiter and chef spoke with her and made suggestions that she thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back. After all, my wife and I got married on Armani's patio.
Four of us were to dinner on Saturday, Jan 7 both couples celebrating a 50th weddiing anniversary. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. They remembered our anniversery and provided a champagne toast, appetizer, and dessert to help us celebrate. Very nice gesture. We will certainly be back for other special occasions. Thank You!
Went to Armani's with wife and friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When booking the event on open table, I had specified that we were celebrating an anniversary.
We arrived early to catch the sunset and experienced good service in the lounge. With about an hour to go before our reservation, I asked the hostess to try to get us seated early, as the dining area was sparsely populated on the holiday weekend. However, we were made to wait until exactly the time of our reservation, despite continuously empty tables in the dining area.
Our food server did a good job, however, I was surprised that nobody in the restaurant made any mention of the anniversary. If I was running a high end restaurant I would be sure that special occasions were acknowledged by the staff.
The food was good in general, however, for the price of the evening, I would have expected to be wowed.
We celebrate our anniversary here every year and love it every time. We had a couple of mix-ups with the service this time, but our experience was still very good. Armani's always feels special and provides an indulgent, delicious meal in a beautiful and relaxing environment.
We wanted the Bison. We had bison at other restaurants that was better. My husband didn't tell me till we got in the car that his was served cold. This you couldn't control unless you requested people didn't use their cell phones, however 3 people next to us each had their cell phone on the whole time taking numerous pictures and the light of the cell phone distracted us. Hindered our view. Also we had the coffee and it wasn't very good. However the wait staff was attentive and excellent.
We were greeted by a lovely hostess, who thought we might enjoy a table overlooking the city, and she was absolutely correct! The lights were spectacular and we were sort of nestled into a nice cozy corner of the room. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. My husband got the salmon and I got the chicken with asparagus, both were perfect, and I had enough to share with him. Thank you Armani's for making our Chritmas Eve, a night to remember !
We went to this restaurant for Christmas Eve. We had been there more than a half dozen times for both personal and business dinners, plus had held our daughter's wedding reception there. The views are spectacular, particularly at sunset, as there is a balcony where you can either watch or take pics of the sunset. The food is always outstanding, as is the service.
This particular visit, we did not have good service at all, perhaps due to it being a holiday. We arrived a few minutes early and wanted to take our holiday picture out on the balcony and the reception desk told us that she would seat us, then after about 5 minutes they hadn't done so, so we went ahead and went outside to take the pic before the sun went down. She then came out and told us that our table was ready, but we hadn't yet taken the picture. She seemed a bit miffed. Our dinner service was significantly slower than normal. For a 545p reservation we were served bread finally at 645pm. Many more snafus, that we don't need to enumerate.
We shared that with the manager and there was a small adjustment to the bill.
Very sad to see anti pasta bar change. Less choices and way to much seafood options and too few vegetables options.
We took two "first time " people there and had talked it up so much ( antipasto bar, desserts , service) and they were totally turned off as was I. I'm certain they will not be return guests. My husband and I have spent many wonderful dinners at Armani's and was very disappointing and sad.
Service was less than stellar. . Had to ask several times for water refill.
The quantities were small for the price. In last year, all the dishes have risen an average of 10 dollars and are smaller . The antipasto selection is very limited comparing with a year ago. The antipasto used to be one of my favorite plates because it had a great variety of items such as calamary, octopus, now is reduced to dry.meats and cheese. Now is 28 very small plate before was 19 lots of diverse items. The entres were average for this type of restaurant since each entree was 45. My salmon had a fishy flavour and was nothing especial. The piece salmon was small for being 42. My significant other had sword fish 45 plate was good. We order two glasses of wine for 20 each and what a ripped off the portion of the wine was less lik 4 oz wich.is disturbing for this price.
I believe Armanis has became a restaurat for only profit making. This restaurant has gone too far with prices for quality and quantity of its foods and wines. I am sad because I have been going to this restaurant for ten years but now this was my last time that I will ever go there. Prices do not match the good quality. Please it is time for your chef, owner, managers to understand the need to something about it.
My girlfriend had always been "dropping hints" to take her to "An Armani Dinner". I thought she wanted me to where an Armani suit to dinner. When I finally discovered Armani's was an actual restaurant, I made a reservation via Open Table for her upcoming Birthday.
Armani’s was simply perfect and flew by all expectations we created in our minds prior to our experience. It was as if a red carpet had been rolled out for us; from our arrival all the way through our departure. My favorite part was when we were leaving I made a point to thank the manager on duty, Steve, for a fabulous experience. I wanted him to be aware of the fantastic service and attention to detail we received from the entire Armani staff. I shared that we were celebrating my girlfriends birthday and he immediately turned to the bartender and said, "did you put away the St. Germain’s?". Although the bartender had put it way for the night, not even a minute later he placed two fancy glasses filled with the delightful elderflower liqueur on the bar for us to enjoy.
We took our nightcap to the patio where we enjoyed our drinks, took in the panoramic view of the Tampa Bay and reflected on our first Armani’s experience.
Thank you Steve and everyone at Armani's for a truly wonderful experience!
See you next time. Maybe next time I'll wear an Armani.
Tony & Sarah
And thank you Open Table for making it very simple to reserve a table!
